First though is a brand new chat that has been added to TPU and can be accessed via the Chat tab at the top of the screen! (Right beside Forums, Members, and Calendar.) But if you're really too lazy to find it, click here.
A couple of notes:
- Only 5 people are able to enter the chatroom at any one time. I can increase this number, but it will cost me money, so consider this a test period. If the chat is unused and never fills up, then there's no reason for me to put down money for more users. If however, we find that chat is frequently reaching its maximum, then I'll be opening my wallet.
- You must use your TPU log in information to chat. This way, nobody can pretend to be someone that they're not.
- This chat is hosted on the official IPB server. That means that we won't have any slowdown, as we did on old TPU.
- If the chat won't load in your browser, type something into the chat bar and press enter/return. It should work without any hitches afterward, although some very old browsers may be incompatible with the chat period. Let me know if you have any problems.
The forums have been upgraded from IPB 3.1.2 to 3.1.4. This fixes a couple of glitches, but otherwise, won't be of much interest to you guys.
